I. To Day, the Lord in Triumph reigns,
Breaks Death and Hell's infernal Chains;
Retakes his Life, and Majesty;
Praise him to all Eternity. Hallelujah.
II. When he descended into Hell,
Satan and all his Legions fell:
Behold the great Accuser cast:
The Hour of Darkness now is past. Hallelujah.
III. Now let the infernal Lions roar,
They cannot hurt us as before;
Lost is the Pow'r of all those Fiends:
We are God's Children, Heirs, and Friends. Hallelujah.
IV. O sweet Redeemer, Jesus Christ!
Our Sacrifice, and great High-Priest,
Lead us by thine Almighty Grace,
To end with Joy our Christian Race. Hallelujah.
V. Infinite Love, gracious Lord!
Thy wond'rous Name shall be ador'd;
To Thee be endless Honours giv'n
By all on Earth, and all in Heav'n. Hallelujah.
